The Utah Leasing Company, a sub sidiary of the Western Metals Com pany of Salt Lake City, has obtained control of the Rawley property, near Bonanza, in Saguache county, and plan to operate it on a large scale. A 700- ton concentrating mill Is being dis mantled at Midvale, Utah, to be shipped to the Rawley property, and a seven-mile tramway will be built to connect the mill with the mine. The mine has a 6,000-foot tunnel and 1,200- foot upraise. It has numerous levels which disclose immense bodies of ore running strongly in gold, silver and copper. The development to be car ried out at the mine this summer will cost $250,000 or more. The Colorado Good Roads Associa tion, including in its membership most of the leading good roads advocates of the state, is expected to go on record in favor of a bond issue for state high way development at its coming annual meeting scheduled to be held in Colo rado Springs Mny 29. Whether the or ganization will indorse a $25,000,000 road bond issue, as urged by the Boul der Commercial Club, or urge support of the $5,000,000 issue proposed by the last Legislature, is one of the ques tions which will be up for discussion. During the fiscal year ended Nov. 30, last, there was an average of 141 inmates in the state reformatory at Buena Vista. The cost of maintenance was $60,774.47, a per capita expense of $472.74, according to a report just compiled by state examiners and made public by State Auditor Arthur M. Stong. Earnings of the institution met übout one-fourth of its support. These amounted to $16,578.25, realized prin cipally from sales of livestock and pro duce grown on the reformatory farm. Forest Service road construction plans in Colorado for 1020 call for 83 miles of roads to be built at a total cost of $427,500. Federal funds will provide $271,000 of the total amount This construction program consists of eleven road projects varying from 3 to 23 miles in length and scattered over the whole western half of the state from Bennett Creek in Larimer county on the Colorado National For est to the Crested Butte-Somerset project on the Gunnison National For est in Gunnison county. Colorado college is to receive $75,000 from the Carnegie corporation of New York to be used as a special endow ment fund to maintain the system of faculty retiring annuities now in op eration. The annuity system was es tablished in Colorado College two years ago. The extension of these an nuities is open to all retiring members of the faculty. The Carnegie corpo ration’s proposal would obviate the drawing of annuities from the general fund of the college. A wool pool has been organized at Montrose in order that the small grow er might benefit as much as the larger grower. Hitherto the small grower in that section has been forced to ship his wool to the markets on consign ment and trust to the judgment of oth ers, while under the new organization the wool will be stored in warehouses there and at Delta and purchasers in vited to bid on the wool. Ten women and two men of the senior class of the University of Colo rado have been elected to membership in the honorary scholastic fraternity Phi Beta Kappa.

A “conscience” check for SSOO has been received by F. H. Wolcott, bur sar of the University of Colorado, from W. S. Burnett of San Francisco, who states that the money is but half of what he calculates he owes the in stitution for failure to pay his tuition when he was a student in the law school in 1897 and 1898. He stated that another check for SSOO would be sent next year. The recent strike made by the Smug gler Leasing Company on its property at Lenado is richer than was at first believed. The ore runs stronger than 50 per cent zinc afld the ore body, as it has been blocked out at this time, will more than pay the company for the necessary outlay to fully develop the property. One hundred and twenty-seven boys and girls in the centralized school at New Raymer have joined the agricul tural clubs organized by the farm bu reau. The club projects include: sum mer tillage of non-irrlgated land, com raising, poultry raising, pig raising, sewing, gardening and cooking. Carl Larson, 26, unmarried, a miner employed at the Smuggler Union, was Instantly killed at Telluride when he walked into an open timber chute and pitched 150 feet to the bottom. The body rolled about fifty feet more and finally came to a halt in an ore chute. THE CHEYENNE RECORD. COLORADO STATE NEWS Western Newspaper Union News Service.

Crawford, special agent in charge of the United States biological survey office in the customs house, an nounced that Agent John W. Crook of Denver had killed four large mountain lions and a lynx on Bear creek, near Monte Vista, Colo. This is a record for one man in a day in many years, according to the federal agents. The specimens probably will be sent to Denver to be mounted. John Giacomozzi was sentenced to life imprisonment following the return of a verdict of murder in the first de gree by a jury in the District Court at Telluride.

NEEDED TO TALK OUT LOUD Doughboy Might Have Had Right Idea, but Surely He Had Never Driven Mules. Returning soldiers tell n good story of n mtlle driver In France. He was driving a four-mule team hitched to a ration wagon and, as he told the story, he lost his way in the night and mist and drove right through the American trench line, whlfch was not continuous at that point, and started rumbling along an old road which led across No- Man’s Land. He had gone a few rods when a doughboy jumped »ut of a lis tening post and began to signal to him with both hands. “What’s the matter?” shouted the driver. “Hush !” said the doughboy in a low and agonized whisper. “You’re head ed straight toward the German lines. For Cod's sake turn around and don’t speak above a whisper.” “Whisper, h !” boomed the driver. “I’ve got to turn four mules around.” Unless the past has enabled us to master the present, we will be slaves to the future.

COUNTRY OF BEE KEEPERS In Liithuania the Production of Honey Has Become an Important Na tional Industry. In Lithuania, when a bee stings a man he turns the other cheek. And almost literally, at that, because it is a sin to kill a bee, and no one ever commits that sin intentionally. As a result of their natural fondness for bees, Lithuanians, with the growth of their economic system, have devel oped bee raising from a general social custom to an important industry. Thousands of barrels of honey are ex ported from Lithuania annually. Almost everyone in Lithuania has at least one bee hive. Sometimes they have swarms of thousands. But it is common even in the cities to have a man serve you midus that Is made from the honey gathered in bis garden hive. Midus, the national drink of Lithuania, is made from fermented honey.
